OCEAN" + BONUS EP by BIRD BY SNOW (CD)

bonus EP tacked on!
new calf sparkles in the field at dawn with after-birth upon her.
Standing strong and brave with wobbly legs in a precarious world.
With totally fearless surrender she steps forward, still wet from
the inner universe of the before birth being. With the same naked
abandon we offer this 3rd long-player by Bird By Snow.
Ten free-pop-mantras, ancient-babies of modern song.
most fertile Bird By Snow album (so far). In this record-world
we find BBS harvesting perspectives in an old-growth
forest of ontology & swimming joyfully in wide-wonder-waters
of multi-instrumentalism. Cellos, drones, pianos, field-recordings,
tape-collage & all manner of drumming, strumming & singing
confer and conspire here. Many of these songs have been two years
in the making, grown and regrown on musical tours through the
generous world. Songs with fresh-washed faces, and crow’s
feet in the corners of their eyes.
LP comes with a poster of poetry, and a hand-made booklet of extenssive
notes and openings... the CD does not, but the notes are online
at home on 8-track cassette tape}
